Installation of outdoor post lanterns is easier than you think, and can be done without the need for mixing a messy bag of concrete. Just make sure about 12 to 18 of the post is below the ground when you bury it and that you have placed rock around it to promote drainage away from the metal post to prevent rusting. For placement in colder areas, the bottom of the post should be deeper than the frost line so it remains stable during freezing. Allow a wide circle around the post with plenty of gravel. Make sure to plumb the post, and tamp generously. Before installation, check for the location of underground utilities to avoid an unfortunate incident!
Homeowners who want to include a new outdoor lighting system should first make a list of what they wish to achieve through their lighting system. One thing to consider is whether or not you want to have lantern lighting at all times, or only when it is needed. If you only want it when needed then the aforementioned options of an infra-red system or a motion detector system are the best methods. You should also determine whether you want to create a specific atmosphere in your garden, around a seating area, on a porch, or a deck. There are limitless effects that can be created with the right outdoor lantern lighting system and lighting layers.
The good news is that the styles today are much more varied than they were in the days of David Copperfield. While old world styles are still very popular, modern designs have taken significant creative leaps, accommodating every home and garden scenario.
Oriental, nautical, arts & craft and traditional are just a few of the types of outdoor post lanterns available online, with glass styles offered in a variety of colors, finishes and thicknesses. Generally, your lamp will range from 1 to 2 feet in height, with a post starting at lengths of 3 to 4 feet and longer. Posts and lamps can be purchased separately on many online websites, with vivid color photographs and intricate detailing to make decision-making, ordering and shipping easy.
When considering outdoor post lanterns for your home, the first thing you want to ask yourself is, what are you lighting? This will help determine the size of your outdoor post lanterns and whether you want the beams to face up, down or spread out for maximum lighting coverage. It will also help narrow your choices if you are trying to match other lighting or home design features such as fences, outdoor furniture, or nearby structures.
